    I thought some of you guys would jump on this like a duck on a June bug.
    For me, I was at the 1977 Grand American.Now I really feel old and a bit lonely...anybody else there? Maybe it's a memory thing.

    Is he dead? I keep hearing rumors he's still kickin'? I actually worked for him as security at the Hilton in 72-73 when I attended UNLV. The Hilton hired Football players as extra security when he was performing. What a blast. We were invited up to his 30th-floor suite on our nights off and at the end of his engagement for a party. He was a good guy. Met a bunch of entertainers and ladies of course...LOL

    I was in the restroom listening to Elvis on the radio, figured there was no way he could be dead ... Having a sing along ...

    I'm guessing you and him were thinking pretty much the same thing about being in a restroom?

    I was living in Chicago at the time, driving home from work listening to Connie Szerszen, (The Top Rock Girly Jock), on WIND 550 AM, when she announced it.
